Adil Najam

Our repost of our ATP Mushaira post on Anwar Masood prompted reader Shahran Asim to send us this newer audio recording of Anwar Masood commenting on elections in Pakistan. I thought it was not only hilarious but also pertinent; and certainly worth sharing. Thanks, Shahran.

[audio: Elections.mp3]

My favorites here is how he starts just with “theek hai!” and the following (especially his use of “burpa” here):

Taraqee iss qadr burpa hoee hai
kissi soorat koi ghatta nahiN hai
bass itni si paraishani hai Anwar
election sarr pe hai atta nahiN hai

Take a listen. Enjoy.
